Daniel Albrecht from Switzerland stunned the skiing world on Thursday as he claimed his first ever win in a major event at the World Ski Championships.
Those on an Are ski holiday
witnessed the 23-year-old secure gold in the men's super-combined with an overall time of two minutes 28.99 seconds.
He pipped Benjamin Raich of Austria into second place by a margin of 0.08 seconds, despite Raich posting the fastest time on the slalom course.
There was more Swiss cheer when Marc Berthod also achieved a podium place, finishing third.
The American Bode Miller, who had earlier finished first in the downhill section, disappointed when it came to the slalom and fell down to sixth place.
